Several of the galleries were closed the day we were there…but we enjoyed an excellent show of the work of Andy Warhol. Some of the work was familiar but we also saw works new to us.

My first time visiting and I was impressed for such a small museum. The Warhol collection was worth the visit.

There was an Andy Warhol exhibit while we were visiting which was fun. These were pieces I have not seen before and added to my appreciation. And it is free!

We toured the museum in early June. It's not a large museum, but it seems to be well staffed, and well inventoried. Each section seems to have its own theme. Much of the art is from the University's private collection. I was browsing and was...More
